Once I started paying close attention to rest periods..my training volume grew..ALOT. I look at a lot of programs--beginner to more advanced--which have relatively few exercises in set/rep schemes that look pretty low. I never really train for over an hour..rarely do I ever and if I do...it's perhaps 10-15 minutes over an hour.
And I know most guys here are in the gym for atleast 45 mnutes themselves. To give you guys an idea of the amount of volume I do..let's look at a more popular day for a lot of people: Back and biceps.
NOTE: 60 seconds rest between everything at least.
Narrow Grip Chins - 3 x 8-10 (tends to go down to 8 by last set)
Wide Grip Pullups - 1 x 8-10
Normal Grip Pullups - 1 x 8-10
Narrow Grip Pullups - 1 x 8-10
Bent over barbell rows - 4 x 8-10 (tends to go down to 8 reps by the last set or so.)
One arm dumbbell rows - 4 x 10-12 (again tends to go down to lower range by last set or so)
Barbell curls - 3 x 8-10
Hammer curls - 2 x 8-10
Chins x 8
Pronated curls - 2 x 8-10
Finish with some more chins.
Yes..this is absolutely completed within an hour.. How the hell are you guys who are in the gym for an hour and some of you more, not doing volume like this?
